Possible New Target for The Hurricanes: Brashard Smith, APB

The former UF commit is a very explosive playmaker that would excel in a Rhett Lashlee offense.

Recently the Florida Gators lost a commitment from Palmetto 3-star APB, Brashard Smith. This would be a huge get for the Hurricanes, as they need to show Brashard the potential he can have in our new offense. He is a very athletic player who can play in the backfield or slot, and be very dangerous in the next level.

With his size being 5’9 180lbs, he can have a similar role to Tutu Atwell (5’9, 155lbs). Tutu was an absolute game changer while at Miami Northwestern, and has transitioned his game to WR for Louisville. He just had a career season and his considered one of the top 10 returning WRs in College Football.

Brashard Smith is the exact same playmaker, and manages to have defenders bounce right off and miss tackles. Smith is an absolute force who will only get bigger and stronger. Miami must be able to keep talent home and sign these Florida athletes. It is important for us to create pipelines with all schools in South Florida, and resume our dynasty.

What makes Smith so unique is how he can make plays with the ball in his hand. He falls forward each play and never allows the first man to make a play on him. Check out this video for proof.

It won't be an easy recruitment when it comes to the Palmetto HS playmaker, as Tennessee seems to be a school on a very hot trail. They are snatching top talent and could take more players from South Florida. Florida is still a school in the race as Smith just wants to take more visits. I believe other SEC schools are getting in contact, so Miami must grab his attention soon.

If Miami has a great season and lands Brashard, this will be a statement to other athletes in the area to stay home and fill up Hard Rock Stadium each week. College Football is better when Miami is winning and we must do what it takes to be elite again.
